Lovely location, superb breakfast but dinner menu does not really exist. I would suggest okay for lunch based on breakfast. Dinner choice was limited and very poorly flavoured.

A gorgeous setting facing the water. A lovely breakfast buffet. A beautiful selection of very fresh fruit, oysters and beautiful salmon. A lovely bakery selection. Dietary requirements are fulfilled with a small gluten free selection. All hot food is served a la carte. Service is on the slow side. Staff on the other hand are honest found my mobile and... More

I went here in October when traveling alone on business. I cost it due to the lovely outside seating over looking the bay and table mountain in the sunshine. I had a roast beef and horseradish sandwich with chips and a savannah light which was lovely. Good price, good service. I went back a week later with my colleague for... More

As a hotel guest we had breakfast here. Food is good as is the choice, views outside are spectacular the down side is the service. It's very hit and miss depending on which staff are on. Not many people use the restaurant in the evening, there is so much choice on the waterfront that they don't need to

My family had a lovely dinner at Oyo the other night- our waiter, Joshua, was attentive and charming, and we greatly enjoyed the food. We were so impressed by the unique desserts and plan to go back soon for the ones we haven't tried. Also, the main portions were generous and the view of the harbour and mountain is spectacular.

Shopping and the heat had made us thirsty so we stopped off here for a refreshing drink. The menu was varied but we were not that hungry so settled for a bowl of chips which came seasoned with herbs and salt, very tasty. To drink we had apple juice and mango juice and I can honestly say the mango juice... More

It's housed in the Alfred Mall, facing the harbour. The staff are clueless about customer service. People who had booked were turned away as there weren't any tables, queues of people formed and some left, others simply walked over to tables which diners were leaving and sat down amid the debris! The food certainly wasn't worth going for and the... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that this particular experience was not in line with our standards. I can assure you that all our reservations are seated. The first 5 days after new years are the busiest of the year and as much as would like to accommodate everyone who arrives we only have specific seating. On these... More

Called in here for an evening meal and had a great table outside, with a view of part of the harbour and all of Table Mountain. Good selection of wines, all at reasonable prices. Steak skewers were nicely cooked and presented, and the Greek salad we ordered as a side dish was enormous! Service was OK, considering they were pretty... More
